Full description
Ancient Romans were extraordinary hydraulic engineers and the spectacular remains of the Aqueducts they built still exist to prove it. Between the 4th Century BC and the 3rd Century AD, Romans built eleven aqueducts that would supply the city of Rome with water. If you are interested in these beautiful and functional engineering masterpieces, then this tour of the Park of the Aqueducts is perfect for you.

Discover the archaeological gems located in the Regional Park of the Appia Antica. Spread over 600 acres, the park houses six of the eleven aqueducts from antiquity plus one built during the Renaissance: the acqueduct Felice. The park stretches within the modern Roman city between Via Appia and Via Tuscolana. Hidden from view by the park’s trees are not only aqueducts but also many other buildings from both Roman and Medieval times.

Throughout the entire tour, the arches of the aqueducts will be the spectacular backdrop for your walk, offering one of the most beautiful and unspoilt landscapes in Rome. Your official guide will tell you about recent excavations and show you newly discovered tombs, the recently uncovered ruins of the ancient street of Via Latina, the remnants of an old hotel, and you will also see the original Roman pipes – which are still in perfect condition.
